There are plenty of reasons to decorate your house key. Like if you need to tell it apart from other keys. Or maybe it's just because you just love a little something extra. Either way, I wouldn't say these DIY projects are for everyone, but if you're so inclined, here are 10 easy ways you can jazz up a boring house key. Grab some nail polish and lets get started.

1. Wrap the top of the key in yarn, like Crème de la Craft

2. You can use nail polish to color code keys, as seen on A Bubbly Life

3. Or use glitter polish to give it some sparkle, a la Ramshackle Glam
